Subject: Best Phil Show I saw
This show blows the doors off the next night. Wish THIS was the one that Phil released, but it's all good.
Subject: Good show... Not Great
Jam>China Cat was hot Sless had some great solos. I personally think Molo is a god. He does hit all the right spots. Campbell is a great musician. I just wish he knew the songs. The jams were great, Molo and lesh would create something out of nothing. Unfortunatley most of the time they would lead nowhere and just fall apart, but the times when they did come together, end of Sunday Soud for instance, it was mind blowing. When the music makes me dance that is a good thing. When the music makes me stand in one spot with my mouth open that is even better
Alot of blues tonight, done well too with the exception of Big Boss.
Broken Arrow was beautifully done
Mr. Charlie was almost flawless except for the missed ending.
Alabama Getaway was smoking. Unbelievable solo from Campbell.
In my opinion it takes more talent to start a song, play it and have an ending. all this jamming inbetween songs would be great if it was a flow into the next song but it seems to just fall apart. Jimmy and Warren were the masters of the seques. these guys just don't have that element.
The second set was unreal. With the exception of Operator every song was played very well.
Cold rain and snow as an excellent opener
Pride of Cucamonga was awsome. After the song was over Phil looked very pleased and congradulated each member of the band.
Next time You see me was straight Chicago Blues. I thought they were going to play "Sweet Home Chicago"
Mookie seegle doesn't do it for me. Not enough umph! His solo during Franklins was great though
Viola Lee blues was the best ive ever seen
Help>Slip>Franks was phenomenal.
The crowd was so loud Phil had to just stand there for a couple minutes before giving his donor rap. Even then You couldn't hear him. This was a stark contrast from the next night where the energy in the crowd (and the band) was so nonexistant.
US Blues Was Smoking with Robinson nailing the lyrics. Very high energy.
Overall I enjoyed this show. But it is painfully clear that the new members don't really know the songs, with the exception of Sless. Maybe if they do another tour together they won't sound so much like a cover band.
Subject: Sunday Sound
Subject: Thanks, Jeff!
One correction: What's listed here as "Wiser Time" is actually "Sunday Sound" which is another Crowes tune, I think.
Can't wait to D/L.....streaming now. Great "Doin' that Rag". Ofay "Big Boss Man". Great "Senor".
I love this version of the band....Larry Campbell was great when he played with Dylan, and Chris Robinson really works here, even though I never cared for the Black Crowes. Wanking is not the order of the day with this line-up. If that's your thing, go grab some Disco Biscuits. This harkens back more to the "Workingman's Dead/American Beauty" sound with a taste of Dylan's Basement Tapes (check the "Long Black Veil" cover from one of the previous shows).
My only complaint is that the drummer never lays back. Always right on the beat. A more "behind-the-beat" drummer like Levon Helm or Billy K. would suit these guys better.
I'm so bummed that I won't be able to make the Pittsburgh show.....
